LIFE IN QUEBEC CITY
A UNIQUE NORTH AMERICAN CITY
With its climate, variety of landscapes, rivers and abundant forests, Québec City is a unique destination in the world to learn how to fly a helicopter.
Living in Québec offers you many advantages, both in terms of historical culture, density, festivals, safety and quality of life. Its international airport also allows you to familiarize yourself with a large airport environment offering moderate air traffic, which is ideal for beginners.
The city offers a great deal of flexibility to accommodate people wishing to immigrate. When it comes to deciding which flight school to choose, there are several factors involved. One of these factors is often related to future opportunities and you may be wondering: what will be my flight conditions and will I be prepared for the world of work?
By learning to fly a helicopter in Quebec City, you will have several advantages that you will not find elsewhere and you will be ready to realize your dream: become a helicopter pilot.
First, you will acquire flight experience close to an international airport: Jean-Lesage International Airport (YQB), without having to deal with the traffic of an international airport located in a large urban centre. As students, flying in Quebec rather than flying in Montreal, will ensure that you can get used to flying in an area with high air traffic, while communicating directly with the control tower. Being able to communicate with the control tower of an international airport is definitely an advantage because you will be able to inform the tower of your travels without any problem and you will also be able to receive their instructions.
Crossing an international area is often much quicker than bypassing it and by following your helicopter pilot training at Capitale Hélicoptère, you will learn how to effectively communicate with the tower.

PROXIMITY OF TRAINING AREAS
Another advantage to be taken into consideration when choosing a flight school is the proximity of the training areas. By choosing Capitale Hélicoptère flight school, you choose a heliport that is located less than five minutes from the training areas. So you lose less time traveling and you focus directly on your training.
We can’t mention the advantages of flying a helicopter in Québec City, without mentioning the breathtaking scenery, the size of the St. Lawrence River, the Laurentians and the Appalachians. You will agree that this adds a little something to your training, while offering you an introduction to mountain flight and over water flight.
The possibility of practicing during the winter season also represents a good advantage attached to a helicopter pilot training in Quebec.
